Poco F3 GT is here. The smartphone takes on OnePlus‘ new premium affordable flagship, OnePlus Nord 2.
Incidentally, it’s the same smartphone that Poco trolled OnePlus for after the latter’s Nord 2 banners went live on Amazon website.
OnePlus’ banners on Amazon for Nord 2 5G say, “Everything you could ask for”. Taking on the same, Poco tweeted, earlier this month, “not your N-ordinary phone.” Below these lines is an image that says, “Poco F3 GT Pretty and a lot lot more. Coming soon.” The banner struck the words “much everything you could ask for” that are there in OnePlus Nord 2’s tagline.
Recently, the company also took a dig at OnePlus over the CPU throttling controversy that it faced recently. “We can’t lie, our battery just won’t die! That’s what makes the 5065 mAh battery one of the brightest stars shining in the #POCOF3GT. All for a powerful performance while consuming lesser power!” said Poco in a tweet.
Few weeks back, a report claimed that OnePlus has been quietly throttling certain apps on its OnePlus 9 series smartphones for to improve battery life and heat management, tweaking the performance of many popular apps to give them enough power. OnePlus too later confirmed this in a statement.
The company has now confirmed that this throttling also affects the OnePlus 9R and OnePlus Nord 2, but users will have the option to disable it.
